Yesterday's Best Dressed: winter skinnies

01 December 2009

So everyone knows that jeans are a must-have wardrobe staple, right? But the question is how to mix them up and try different trends. So once again we look to the best dressed stars who were out and about yesterday for some serious style tips. Get your celeb-spiration here...

After an explosion of bright colour courtesy of her daring outfits on the Victoria’s Secret catwalk, it seems model-of-the-moment Miranda Kerr is keeping it simple by going back to black. She wowed the crowd in a full-length noir Burberry gown at the opening of hotel La Mamounia last week and for her appearance on 'It's On With Alexa Chung', the model once again chose a super sleek dark look. As Jessica Simpson knows, high-waisted jeans accented by a bold belt aren’t easy to pull off but by teaming her skinnys with a thigh-skimming blazer and sky-scraping Louboutins, Miranda looks cool and curvy. Being blessed with such supermodel proportions probably helps too... Also working some skinnys in New York was Natalie Portman who arrived at the ‘Today Show’ dressed in a nautical-inspired cropped jacket and with her dark denim jeans loosely tucked into a pair of grey ankle boots, the actress looks ever so cute!

But for an aggressive edge to your jeans, just add a pair of knee-high boots like Stella McCartney who sexed-up her skinnies while out and about in London yesterday. The designer tempered the boot’s dominatrix style with a simple mac for one surefire way to make a bold statement this winter. Kate Hudson also slipped on a flat pair with more modest pieces for her dressed-down daytime look. We want!

Still rocking her Diane von Furstenberg Obama Love tote, Jessica Alba kept it casual cool in her skinnies worn with a matching lumberjack shirt – a pair of pumps and an elegant bag is all that’s needed for a feminine touch. And if you really hate skinny jeans, take a cue from the boyfriend trend a la Jennifer Aniston who sensibly chose an easy fit for her flight from Marrakech to LA. Jen mastered her signature effortless chic by pairing her ripped rolled-up denim with casual trainers and a striped tee toughened up by a black biker. Too cool for school...
